% of the time. consumer staples did win the trade today. over the last 20 years, technology has been the best performing s&p sector in the fourth quarter, up more than 7% on average. that makes sense since qe 4 is about that important holiday season. energy and utilities are the two most underperforming sectors in q4 over the past 20 years. so with the recent run-up in the market, are there still opportunities in the strong performing tech and consumer discretionary groups? one of our cnbc masters found tech trading at deep discounts in relation to historical averages. take a look at this. ebay's p/e average 50% its historical average below. intel, 47% below its historical average p/e ratio. 94% below its historical average. that's the best performer of the group followed by ad agency interpublic with a p/e ratio 62% its historical average. there could be room to run in some of these names. we'll have to wait and see until all of this plays out to come. maria, back to you. >> all right, court, thank you so much. we'll be watching that. courtney reagan. stick around. we have a lot more headed

: in terms of water supply, wastewater, stormwater development -- these are independent technologies. but what came first, most often, was a water supply system. the basic system is essentially the same as we used back in the 19th century. and in some cases, some of the same pipes. grusheski: philadelphia was the first american city to develop a water system and to take on as a municipal responsibility water delivery to all of its citizens. when william penn laid out the city, he actually chose a spot of land that had a lot of groundwater. however, by 1730, 30,000 people lived within the first seven blocks of philadelphia, next to the delaware river. well, 30,000 people caused filth in the city and polluted their water sources. the groundwater was not potable. and in one year, 1/6 of the population died of yellow fever. now, they didn't know at the time that yellow fever was carried by mosquitoes. but the health issue was major in that first movement to build a water system. narrator: so they set out to find the cleanest source of water. although the majority of philadelphia's water

as a nation, and as you've heard before, as an element of u.s. technological leadership nationwide, so we take it very seriously. we appreciate the support that congress has shown for nextgen. we are starting to see, and it's easier on the inside sometimes to see the progress that is being made and operationally deployed usable parts of this that are making a meaningful difference. in terms of completing flights in bad weather, new capacity, greater safety, and it's those benefits will start to compound as well. >> thanks to the panel for being here today. this has been helpful for me. and mr. chairman, i yield back. >> thank you. >> thank you, mr. chair. first i like to thank the panel, several of y'all have been -- i appreciate your courtesy and service to her country. one issue, everything federal express as a leader in all things in aviation, package delivery, and sports in every other way. having made a comment, word from our sponsor, but -- [laughter] let me ask, i think probably mr. porcari might be the person to ask. the proposal about structures around airports, and, of course, memphi
